    I've done that with motorcycles. Buy a neglected unit in the Fall and fix it up real nice over the winter. Then sell it in the Spring or early Summer. I'm all thumbs with playing mechanic, so I didn't play there much.
    Someone handier than me and a good eye for turning a buck could do a nice paying little job every winter though. Boats, motos, quads, etc.
    I had a little fun riding the tuned up moto's as well. One was a DR400 supermoto. I should have kept that bike.

    I'm not really trying to make money. I have three daughters so I usually need 5 running bikes for us all and the wife. This will be a spare probably or I might try to sell it and buy another Bayou 220 for my youngest that's gonna outgrow her 80 soon.

    But I wouldn't mind opening a shop in the future but I would have to move. The area I'm in is too poor overall to support a decent shop plus it would be impossible to get help.

    Really hate landlords that refuse to do repairs, especially a/c units that blow only warm air in 90 degree weather. All I can do is call code enforcement, which I did today, so might be looking for a new place to live.

    Huh, calling code worked. Got a brand spanking new a/c. Feels good in here again.

    I knew it was just a matter of time. It made it farther than most jeeps.

    Bought a used Snowpeak Titanium French press to gut and use as a mug.

    Cheaper then buying a new titanium mug and I like the deeper instead of wider mugs.

    Plus I can store my silverware and other goodies in the deeper mug :)

    Will Roger’s said you if you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma just wait five minutes and it will change.

    Apparently just driving to the next county will do the trick as well.

    Not here.

    Some rain moved through real early this morning, like 3am or so.

    Was a big chance of rain today for mid morning then again mid afternoon, but it ended up not doing anything at all.

    Looks about right. I have seen so many aberrant variations over the past few years that I check every snake for a hood and a rattle.

    No, he meant that he should wear his brown pants when he might see a snake.
